A small town and a sexy stranger make for one steamy summer on the bayou—but is it too hot for her to handle?Enza Parker never wanted to set foot in Bayou Sabine again—but inheriting her estranged grandmother’s house means she has no choice but to go back. She’s in the business of fixing things—mainly houses—but her romantic life? Yeah, that’s broken beyond repair.Silver lining: she can flip the sweet old farmhouse and sell it for a nice profit—and that just might get her back on her feet again.The only catch? Enza’s new house has an unexpected tenant: sexy firefighter Jack Mayronne. Before she can say “eviction,” he turns on the charm and offers to help her with the flip—if she lets him stay. He’s hotter than a tin roof in July, but he looks like he can use a hammer just fine. She can keep it professional. No problem.This town’s full of surprises, though, and soon Jack is the least of her worries. Sparks fly as they share a roof and as their fling intensifies, Enza stumbles on a dark family secret that she can’t ignore. Jack has his own secrets, but he’s skilled at knocking down walls—especially the ones Enza has built around her heart. They might be better for each other than she first thought—but is she bold enough to find out if what they have can last?Author’s note: This book is written for readers who love quirky small town characters, a steamy love story, forced proximity, a dash of mystery and Southern charm, plucky heroines, dashing heroes, delicious tension, and plenty of sizzling chemistry--if that sounds like you, then welcome to Bayou Sabine!

Review "Read it for the mystery, read it for the fire, read it for the magic." - Katie Rose Guest Pryal, author of Entanglement"I loved this book. It has so many different dimensions that you will literally be glued to the pages... There is mystery, intrigue, and some unexpected pieces to the story... PICK UP THIS BOOK. It's a MUST READ." - Pretty Little Book Review"From the moment Jack spoke in that French/Creole drawl he and Faulkenberry had me hook, line and sinker. I was a goner, and I didn't surface until the novel's end. I may be in love." - Page One Books "This story was about much more than just a simple romance. There was mystery, suspense, voodoo, drama, and some steamy love scenes! No cliché love story here! I wasn't ever able to guess what was going to happen next and I loved that. I would highly recommend this novel to any readers who enjoy fiction novels that include a splash of mystery and love." - The Blonde Bookworm --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
